About

This indicator is the percentage of students in grades 7 to 12 who rode in an on-road vehicle (e.g., car, van, truck) driven by someone who had been drinking alcohol, using marijuana, or other illegal drugs in the last 12 months.

Source

New Brunswick Health Council, New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey - Grades 6-12

Calculations

This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of respondents who answered "1-3 times or 4 or more times" by the number of respondents who answered "never, 1-3 times, 4 or more times or I did not ride in an on-road vehicle" to the question: In the last 12 months, how many times did you ride in an on-road vehicle (e.g., car, van, truck) driven by someone who had been drinking alcohol, using marijuana, or other illegal drugs?
